DePadova - 606 Universal Shelving System by Dieter Rams

606 Universal Shelving System

Design: Dieter Rams 1984

"A bookcase should be neutral, its life comes from the books it contains". Against the wall or as a room divider, the project by Dieter Rams starts with this premise. A fluid, extremely flexible program De Padova offers entirely in natural or white painted aluminium. Light, luminous, scratchproof. In the home, it is a bookcase, a storage unit, a wardrobe. In the office it can be used for files, in a showroom to display objects and accessories.

You don’t notice it, but it’s there. Not just a bookcase but a true, versatile system, ready for different uses. The 606 Universal Shelving System becomes a wardrobe with rods for hanging clothing, combined with shelves and drawers. The modules with sliding doors are ideal for bar areas in the home, while CDs and DVDs can be stored in spacious drawers.

Bookcase, a very flexible storage device. Freestanding or wall-mounted.

Uprights and sections in anodized extruded aluminium or white epoxy powder coated. Shelves, containers and mobile internal shelves in anodized aluminium sheet or white epoxy powder coated. Drawer units with two or three drawers in anodized aluminium sheet and desk unit in anodized aluminium, natural or painted in white.

Finish / Colour
Uprights: anodized satin-finish silver or white epoxy powder coated. Sections, shelves, containers, mobile internal shelves for containers, drawer units: anodized satin-finish silver or white epoxy powder coated.

The uprights are used for floor-to-ceiling installation and can be adjusted by 4 cm at the top and the bottom. Uprights are always paired with sections. Supports: used when the uprights are placed on the wall, to attach the bookcase to the wall. Highly recommended for bookcases bearing heavy loads, and for all uprights taller than 3 m. Reinforcement crossbars in anodized aluminium, used only for bookcases with uprights; inserted in every span, one for each meter of height. The section is directly attached to the wall or combined with the upright, in the case of a divider bookcase. Section of 57, 114, 171 and 200 cm have a perforation interval of 7 cm and can be put one over the other. The sections with heights of 11 and 39.5 cm can only be used for the positioning of the single shelf (11 cm) and the single container (with door or drawers, 39.5 cm). In the case of use of wall-mounted sections, test the consistency of the wall to find the best attachment point.
